Book Review: Isle of Dragons

Isle of Dragons by C. Greenwood My rating: (Click here to read on Goodreads.) This book is another solid start by C. Greenwood. She is beginning to remind me of other great fantasy authors like R. A. Salvatore and Robert Jordan. It didn’t occur to me until I finished this book is that the name of the main character is rarely mentioned. In fact it may have only happened twice, three times at most. I know its peculiar to mention that fact but you become so invested with the story and what will happen that the name of the main character becomes irrelevant. You know [… Click to Continue …]

Book Review: Magic of Dimmingwood Trilogy

Thief’s Curse by C. Greenwood My rating:  (Read this review on Goodreads instead) All three books were gifted to me by the author and, while I wanted to write a review upon completion of each book, I decided to defer until the end. I did this for a couple of reasons. 1) I was enjoying the books so much I didn’t want to hesitate between each book. 2) All three books are very cohesive so writing individual reviews would begin to feel redundant. It feels more beneficial to write a review that encompasses the entire Magic of Dimmingwood trilogy. If you are familiar with the [… Click to Continue …]

Book Review: Clash of Catalysts

Clash of Catalysts by C. Greenwood My rating:  (See this review on Goodreads.) The last two books of this series were hard to put down. There was action and uncertainty from beginning to end and, to be honest, it took me a little while to warm up to the characters. In fact, I didn’t really feel that emotional investment until book 3. I will warn you, there are spoilers ahead! I think Geveral remains my favorite character from the series, though Orrick did redeem himself, perhaps the author’s intention. The author surprised me as to Eydis’ fate; I was expecting something much different. When the villain, [… Click to Continue …]

Book Review: Summoner of Storms

Summoner of Storms by C. Greenwood My rating:  Summoner of Storms is book III of the Catalysts of Chaos series by C. Greenwood. I received a review copy of this book in advance of its release after subscribing to the authors newsletter. I really like reading ARC books, especially in genre’s that I enjoy. There are three main catalysts in this series and Geveral is my favorite. Perhaps that is why I was excited to read this book (since the first two seemed to be tailored toward the other two catalysts, Eydis and Orrick). Please note, there are mild spoilers ahead but they will only be [… Click to Continue …]

Book Review: Mistress of Masks

Mistress of Masks by C. Greenwood My rating:  (Click here to go to Goodreads) Honestly, I was struggling for a while to write a review since I finished Mistress of Masks. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed the book, I just didn’t know what to say because I’ve been reading several fantasy novels lately. In fact the fantasy novel I finished just before this book was written by the same author. So there isn’t more I can say that I haven’t already said. Obviously I enjoy her work so far since I jumped right into another book and I will be reading Betrayer of Blood next. The [… Click to Continue …]

Book Review: Magic of Thieves

Magic of Thieves by C. Greenwood My rating:  (Click here to read this review on Goodreads) I really enjoy reading random fantasy books by authors that are either up and coming or I’m not extremely familiar with. C Greenwood has been writing books for, what appears to be, 4 years. Magic of Thieves was her first book published back in 2012.  I started following C Greenwood on Twitter and I signed up for her newsletter which is how I acquired a copy of her book. I’ll admit that it took me a couple of chapters to get into the book. I should make an effort to [… Click to Continue …]
